Advertisements I thought everyone here would appreciate this: http://blog.seattletimes.nwsource.com/brierdudley/2008/12/08/some_faqs_on_comcast_digital_s.html Comcast Seattle will be moving the bulk of the extended basic service teir digital and ENCRYPTING THEM!! They will force anyone currently on this teir of service to get their digital cable box. I ran the numbers for my folks in Redmond (they have 9 TV's total) and they are looking at an additional $14 per month! This assumes that Crapcast won't tack on their stupid "additional digital outlet" fee to each of the additional cable boxes. God I hate Comcast!!
